BET’s presentation of Black Girls Rock! last Sunday hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross and Regina King showcased young women who are committed to changing the world for better. Seeing these young women and the work they were doing was totally inspirational. Although I thought the TV program was too celebrity driven (I would have loved to see more about the young women), I realized this was their fundraiser. BLACK GIRLS ROCK! Inc. is youth empowerment and mentoring organization established to promote the arts for young women of color, as well as to encourage dialogue and analysis of the ways women of color are portrayed in the media. Young women are offered access to enrichment programs and opportunities that place special emphasis on personal development through the arts and cooperative learning.
BET will repeat this show today at 8 pm so check their listings and visit website Black Girls Rock to learn more and give a donation. This is worth seeing with the young people in your life.
